Re: Hypocrisy

And the questions noone ever asks, what is marriage ? Where did "marriage" come from? Is "marriage" religious? Is "marriage" just acknowledging what is natural? Is "marriage" a certificate? Does "marriage" have an true objective meaning? If everyone ...

Re: Anyone here like to surf?

Grew up surfing ages 11-28. It was a very exciting, fun, healthy, healing, elating sport. I thank God for allowing me to participate in his creation. Unfortunaltey, adulthood came calling. Fell out of surfing with responsibilities etc. Hoping to get back in the ocean soon. Love the waves, just body...

Re: What things, already in Heaven, needed to be reconciled?

First, more verses would be needed to support such a thing, that in Christ fallen angels can find reconciliation. In Scripture, I find nothing the sort supported, and rather the opposite. Those angels who oppose God have been chained and await judgement (2 Peter 2:4). Clearly, some are allowed to ro...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

All this certainty God doesn't exist is just proving my beliefs surrounding Atheists. If one doesn't see the first line of evidences such the orderly world as requiring some super intelligence, then chances are nothing else presented will change their minds. What I see is first needed, is a changing...

Re: The Book of Job: Was Job Real? And if so, why would God allow Satan to test Job?

It is sometimes said in relation to the life of a person, or people, that it isn't right for someone to play God. Isn't one implication of this then that it is alright for God to "play God"?

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

Statistically the most dangerous person to a child in regards to sexual violence, domestic violence and abuse is a male step parent. The stats are off the richter in regards to the biggest abusers of children; It’s male, heterosexual step fathers. The statistics are echoed across the board, regardl...

Re: Accepted Jesus, But Doesn't Believe He's God

PaulS could possibly weigh in more here, but JWs nonetheless believe on Jesus, that He is Lord. So lets stick with JWs and not something further off the path such as Hinduism, a Krishna or what-have-you -- where clearly one's faith cannot possibly be in the person of Christ. Yes, JWs theologic is st...

Re: Accepted Jesus, But Doesn't Believe He's God

To come back to this thread, I've thought about this question for many years, in particular whether JWs, Mormons and the like may be saved. At the end of the day, I believe we have to just say only God knows the heart and whether their faith in Christ counts as true belief. Certainly, I think there ...

Re: What's the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?

On a more serious note, I really don't like the question. It presupposes there are only two opposite sexes, and we know better today, surely?!?

Re: Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe

While Nessa's raising such is slightly different, there is a reason I see why pedopihlia is often raised in debates to do with homosexuality. Physicalism is accepted as a given, and what this means is that everything about us is determined physically by this gene or that gene. While the science has ...

Re: Accepted Jesus, But Doesn't Believe He's God

I am not qualified to comment but lean towards LDS position on this specific question. So you disagree with what Paul wrote and that the Gospel of John says? No. But what Paul and John wrote is NOT what the LDS believe or preach. They preach the trinity is three separate parts. Father, son, and Hol...

Re: Is Christianity out of date?

Does gravity ever become "out of date"? I'm not sure your question is formed correctly, unless one takes the view that Christianity is a matter of personal taste rather than truth. I suspect the person asking such a question wouldn't really be Christian or understand what such means. If I ...
